Cold emailing is one of the best skills to have in 2021. Here, we’ll cover what you should do to get your next internship or job. This document will be targeted towards tech and computer science students, but it can also be useful for students in other fields.

What is a cold email?

Selling point

I’ve been working on my app, which you can see here: Link. I’ve used the MERN (mongo, express, react, node) stack to develop this over the course of 3 months, and I can use these skills to my advantage if I get the internship opportunity.

For the last 6 months, I’ve regularly updated my Github with multiple projects, coding questions, and class related stuff, which you can find here: Link. Most of these have been in react and node js, but I’m open to learning new things.

I’ve attended multiple hackathons in the last 6 months, creating over 4 mobile and web dev projects. You can find some of them on my Github here (Link), and I would be more than happy to share all more with you over a call or email.

For the last 3 months, I’ve been working on a project called ’30 days coding’. I’m helping students prepare for coding interviews by compiling the best free resources out there. We’ve helped thousands of students land internships and jobs in the last 6 months.

I’m a student, and, for the last 6 months, I’ve taken 3 more classes than the average sophomore student. Not only this, I’ve earned A’s in all of them, and I’m continuing to work harder than before. I’ve also started gaining skills outside of school and would love to gain some more through the internship at your {company}.

I’ve been working with a startup called {name} where we’ve created a dashboard to find cat cafes near your location. We’ve had thousands of users since then and we aim to grow even more in the future. The mobile app uses react native, and I’ve learned about navigation, routing, architecture, and other amazing things that can be done with react native.


Hey {recruiter’s name},

{Intro}: Hope you’re doing well. I’m a Computer Science student at {college} and am really interested in the New-grad SDE position at Amazon.

{Work experience}

This past summer, I was an intern at {} where I developed a web app using MERN tech stack. I’ve enjoyed developing mobile and web apps before, some of which you can find on my Github here.

My skills include: Frontend, Backend, Full-stack, Mobile, and Web development. I’ve had 4+ internships before with 10+ open source projects under my name. Here are some of the useful links for more information: Github, Portfolio, LinkedIn, {skills and links}
